We're still alive! Beloved thousands of fans, fear not, Sh!t Theatre are just very busy working for the Rio Occupation London every waking second of the day until 5th August. For more info on what we are working on, check out www.riooccupationlondon.com. I am mostly concentrating on Gustavo Ciriaco's project at the moment, which features Louise Mothersole of Sh!t Theatre 'fame' and Anais Lalange who is an artist, wrestler and a member of our collective AiR Supply. Louise might be doing her Julie Andrews as part of the performances, which happen on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of August at v22/ The Biscuit Factory, so we all know they will be worth seeing. They are also free! And feature 29 other Brazilians doing braziliany things, like making music and films and not turning up on time.
This whole extravaganza is sponsored by Petrobas, your friendly local South American oil company. We were told this quite a while after accepting the job, but feel free to say things like 'amoral shitty hypocrites!' to us tomorrow.
Tomorrow? You want to talk about tomorrow? Well, you should have said! Tomorrow is our very last London preview of Sh!t Theatre present: Sh!t Theatre's JSA (Job Seekers Anonymous) + Office Party for the Unemployed at Bethnal Green Working Mens Club. http://www.workersplaytime.net/thisweek.htm
It's guaranteed to be an absolute shambles given the 0 time we've had to rehearse, but it will be fun and there will be games and cheese and pineapple sticks and Lewis Church back on the decks with his soul music/ one Lady Gaga track.
Other People's Sh!t
This Monday 23rd we hosted the first Sh!t Theatre present: Other People's Sh!t with Press Play Films at their Press Play House on Vyner Street. The evening featured 2 full-length previews from Matt Thomas and Fran Moulds and some shit MCing from us. The two shows were both excellent, so allow us to recommend: for character comedy, Fran Moulds at the Wee Coup everyday in Edinburgh with Significant Human Error, and for crucifixes and Sophie Dahl, Matt Thomas's The Human Being's Guide to Not Being A Dick About Religion which will be shown in London in September.
So back to work...I am currently risk assessing a rooftop balcony for a performance (Risk: Falling off and dying. Solution: Trying not to fall off and die)...but see you on Thursday (tomorrow!) at the Working Mens Club! x
